This looks really nice. It would be cool if this line became a budget SRC compliment. However, at 50 bucks a pop I can't see going for one of these over an SRC. Well, maybe for Grendizer because... Grendizer.

Also, I'm so jealous over your pics. They always look stunning! Excellent job!

Yeah, I think SRC is the superior toy for the price. A smaller company would probably have to double the price for a similar product. The unique license(s) will have to make up the difference in the mind of the collector.

And thanks for the kind words on my photos!

"Something about the arms doesn't look quite right."

This is one beautiful Grendizer. I really like the chrome (who doesn't?) and the sculpt, so awesome.

It's just too bad it's not in the same scale as the SRC Mazingers, because if it was, I would definitely get this one instead of the SRC version.

Thanks for the review!

I don't understand why if the elbow joint is so small they made it so it hits one of the red spines instead of going between them. Is the toy just assembled wrong?

This is a pretty nice Gokin!

I actually own it and I must admit, it's really nice, cheap alternative to SOC IMO, even though the red spine got bent on my Grendizer when I tried to move its elbow's, but other than that, it's pretty cool! ^.^

Strangely, it reminds me of those odd articulated Mazinger figures that came out of Argentina, but in shiny diecast.

So to avoid the bumping into the arm spines, why not put the elbow joint into the upper arm?

Comments here are making me think I should wait for the SRC.
I'd like to handle a pice from a new line, new to me. But although I don't love love the SRC line at least I know what I'll be getting.
Id really like the SOC GX-04s but...$$!

Has Bandi done any weapon/vehical sets for any figures in the SEC line...? Basically will we get a spanzer?

Great review. Thx!
